Worst narrator I have found, great stories
My children and I love the Thornton Burgess "For Children" books. There are actually four, the Animal Book, the Bird Book, At the Seashore, and the Flower Book. We have read and re-read them all. Appropriate and fun for all ages.
But this narrator is really irritating. Nasal, a bit whiny, and with a very odd, almost mechanical, cadence. Not only is it a terrible performance, it is not even an adequate simple reading of the material.
We have waited a long time for this to be released by Audible, but it's going back. My kids and I agree that the text-to-speech reading of this on their old kindle is easier to listen to than this performance. This is the first time I have been disappointed and irritated enough to write a review.
Offer a real performance of such good material Audible!
Also, please realize, there are a lot of positive reviews here, but if you read them, they are for the material and more specifically the kindle editions, not the Audible editions! Really?
